Granny in the Sky with Diamonds is a sweet and light baby blanket designed specifically with self-striping yarns in mind. The body of the pattern is made mainly of double crochets worked in rows and from corner to corner. It includes a subtle and lacy diamond pattern using traditional granny stitch.

The light and airy blanket is then anchored with a border that’s rich in texture and adds just a touch of weight. The border is also designed to work with your self-striping yarn to blend and distribute the colors and bring the entire project together.

Upon purchase you’ll receive a download of the 12 page PDF document. The pattern includes lots of photos to help, but does not include full photo tutorials. An understanding of written crochet patterns will be needed. Please visit the Written Pattern Conventions page of my website ( to learn more about my pattern writing style.
